Hey guys. So, this is a problem I've been having ever since I bought my Samson C01U condenser mic. I record game playthroughs and put them up on Youtube, with my commentary over it, like lots of people do. However, my commentary footage, which I record with Audacity slowly becomes more and more desynced the longer I play. This never used to happen when I was using headset microphones, but for some reason happens now that I've upgraded to a better audio setup.


I'm here today to try and find out what can cause such an issue, and hopefully find some ways to fix it. I made a video showing the desync, as well as some of my Audacity settings, which can be seen here:





The version of Audacity I'm currently using is 2.0.5.


My Samson C01U is connected to my computer via USB cable, into a USB 2.0 port. My computer specs are as follows:


OS: Windows 7 64bit

CPU: AMD FX-6300 6-core 3.5GHz

RAM: 2x4GB of PC1600 DDR3

PSU: 500w

GPU: GeForce 560 GTX


If anybody out there who is more well-versed in audio setups than I am has any ideas as to what can create such a problem, I would be most grateful to hear your suggestions. Also, if you require more information from me, I'll be more than happy to give it. Any help at all you could provide would be fantastic. Thank you in advance!

Just a quick bump to say that I have found a workaround to the problem. A simple Audacity plugin that shrinks down the audio to a specified amount. If anyone ever has a similar problem, you should definitely check it out here: http://forum.audacityteam.org/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=64003
